Mountain Biking Collection by
komoot

Don't have time to cross the Alps? Then we've got just the Collection for you: Here, we bring to you the best Highlights of the Swiss Alps, ready for experiencing over a long weekend. On this ride, you'll go through two countries, several regions, the most impressive gorge in the Alps, and some of the most beautiful valleys you can imagine — complete with tons of trail fun.

The starting point for this epic adventure is in the region of Unterengadin in Switzerland. From here, you'll make your way to the breathtaking Uina Gorge before heading up to the majestic Sesvenna Hut. As you then descend into the Vinschgau, it's smooth sailing on some awesome trails as you ride towards your endpoint for day one in the Münstertal. On day two, your main Highlight will arguably be the Val Mora high valley — and especially the epic singletrack that'll bring you in. You'll then spend your second night in Livigno, an area that was once known as a smuggler's paradise, before getting an early start on day three. As it's your final day, there's no reason not to give it all — something that the trail will definitely demand. Here, for this final stage, you'll ride up to the Passo Chaschauna, from where you'll have incredible views of the entire landscape. If you've still got some strength left after all that, there's only one thing left to do: To glide back down into the valley on some of the best singletracks you'll ever experience — right back to your starting point.

    On the very first day of the brilliant three-day tour "Giro Engiadina Bassa" one of the biggest mountain bike highlights of the Eastern Alps awaits you - the famous Uina gorge. For several kilometers, a gallery was carved into the rock in the imposing gorge, which is second to none. The Uina gorge must have crossed every true mountain biker least once in his life. However, pushing is announced because of the danger of falling. But that does not matter, because so you can better get involved in the nature and the spectacular view.
    After the ravine a beautiful trail follows the Schlinigpass and up there you can strengthen yourself in the Sesvennahütte.
    In Muenstertal, just before the Swiss border, the stage destination waits for you and you can let the day and the experiences pass once again.

    Today the circle closes on your tour through the Swiss National Park and you come back to the starting point Scuol. For this you have to pedal properly again, because the last day will be the longest. Almost 80 kilometers and 1,800 vertical meters are waiting for you.Here you come across the highest point of the tour, the Chaschauna Pass. 2,700 meters will show you your altimeter. You will be rewarded with the descent from the top of the pass, which is not easy, but it really breaks. After this highlight you "roll" through the Inn Valley on the Inn Cycle Path through the Engadin and its typical small mountain village. From Zernez you can shorten the stage if necessary and save you some altitude when you drive back to Scuol on the main road.
